You can listen and compare the quality and download times of the two file types. The Wave file (447 KiloBytes) is on the PinBall home page. The RealAudio file (59 KiloBytes) follows.

This topic summarizes how to copy a pre-developed Microsoft Wave sound file and display it on a web site.

To copy an existing Wave file and use it on a web site:

  1. Search the web for a database of sound files
  2. Copy the sound file to your PC
  3. Code your web page to reference the sound file. You can code the sound file to play automatically when the web site is accessed, to play once, or to play in an infinite loop.
  4. Upload the sound file and web page to your web server
  5. Test the file with a variety of browsers to ensure that it works OK

For an example of the coding to play the sound file once, refer to the source code for the PinBall home page or the following example. By clicking on the text next to the following graphic, you can listen to the sound of a pinball machine.
